Whole to Love

Deedee, my sister, invited me to her church for a special program three years ago. I had just gotten out of a bad relationship, the third in 18 months. I was quite depressed and so I just decided to get out of my house even if it meant going to some ‘religious program’. I thought it couldn’t be all that bad since my sister was married to one of the best guys in the world. Maybe my man was in the church too. No. I didn’t meet “my man” there but I......

To love and in whole

Bolu and I have known each other for eight years now. We met in the university fellowship and became fast friends; he was a supportive leader all through his tenure till his graduation when he left to serve in Katsina. One thing I loved about him was his intuition and ability to discern.  He always seems to know the right thing to do or say at every point in time, he was a natural people manager. He advised me on every important thing and to a large extent his opinions were always......

The Prayer Ride

Waking up in the morning to pray, have a quiet time with God, seek his face about the day had always been a big challenge for the past few years. It has been one excuse or another. Back in school, it was either the morning lecture rush or the early morning assignment submissions. Now that I’m a grown up with a job, things seem to be getting worse. I always spend the morning saying my routine short prayers like “thank you father for this morning, my day is in your hands; bless......

Opened ears and hearts

Picture your uncle who offered you a new Apple macbook laptop making good his word today, the opposite is exam day for most students… I, not exempted. Woke up to a cold harmattan morning 30mins before the 9am paper and met a few of my mates arguing on the AOC (area of concentration) which the course teacher had given viz a viz the correct answers to go with the questions. Snap! It was a lot like I relived the slap my dad gave me when I returned home last semester with my......

Overcoming Doubt

The theatrical nuances of schooling influences every young school leaver, and I wasn’t of any exception. Most of out final year discussions went from a potential great job, Chevron offer, and one net-breaking career opportunity Trust me, I’m a believer; a faith-driving and executing one. I grew up in the Lord and have had a wonderful experience of his manifold blessing, I dare say – everything I laid my hands on prospers. So school finished, “Pali” handed over, and God did it, a honor-filled certificate; and it’s so easy to connect those......

Yearning for the Supernatural

Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, (Isaiah. 64:1(KJV)) The above bible verse captures the yearning of a man for God, he wanted God so much that he requested God to “rend” the heavens to come down. He was simply desperate for God, he yearned for Him. Why was he so desperate for God? 1. He found himself in a desperate situation. 2. He understood and was convinced of what God can do. He said “……that the mountains......

Lost to Anger?

“You shouldn’t have spoken harshly to the cashier, Bosun. I’m sick and tired of your terrible temper!” Bimpe said to him as they got into his car from the supermarket. “I shouldn’t speak up and be cheated? What are you telling me? I work hard to get my money,” Bosun replied angrily, his baritone voice echoing in the car. “No one is disputing that fact, but try to take things easy. You just embarrassed me and yourself back in there. If you continue like this, we might have to stop going out......

2015 Review

Welcome again to the ‘just-after-the-new-year-period’. We bless the Messiah for His love and faithfulness over us as individuals, family, church, and the nation. Let’s go take a quick reflection on some of the issues that affected us or had implications for us as children of God in the year 2015. One of the issues that reverberated around the world were the repeated attacks by terrorist/Islamic groups. There were attacks in France, Syria, and of course Nigeria. It is noteworthy that such attacks do not distinguish between religious inclination, but affect everyone. We......
